ResQte Of The Week: Dateline, Singapore!

You will NOT believe this video. This little Bebeh Batski was lost and cried for help. Watch Mama swoop in to the rescue! Quoting the video, “The baby bat was found lost and stranded almost two hours prior to this reunion- it was amazing to see that the parent was around the area and was so quick to pick up on her baby’s calls for help and fly around us.”

(From Nothing To Do With Arbroath. BTW- the group who helped with the rescue is ACRES: Animal Concerns Research and Education Society, based in Singapore.)

Bats, It’s Tuesday!

Trish Wimberley from the Australian Bat Clinic (site appears to be wonky at the moment) introduced the pair while the latest “Pirates Of The Caribbean” film was shooting near her rescue center on the Gold Coast. Johnny expressed his love of bats and offered to sponsor the little one as it undergoes rehabilitation at the clinic, after losing contact with it’s mother during a heavy storm.

Extreme weather events are often damaging to flying fox populations causing many baby bats to be separated from their mothers, often via abnormally high temperatures or cyclonic winds.

Rescued bats in care at the clinic frequently remain for many months as they are prepared for their release back to the wild.

The bat clinic takes in hundred of bats every year and is commited to education and conservation of bats.

Donations can be made via their Facebook page! Remember: Never touch wild bats unless you are vaccinated and are trained to handle them. If you see a bat that needs assistance, call a local wildlife group as soon as possible.

Captain Bat Sparrow

And now for something completely batty: Johnny Depp, as Captain Jack Sparrow, feeding a bat. The “Pirates of the Caribbean” star, on a break from filming in Australia, visited the Australian Bat Clinic to meet the premature-born flying fox he adopted last May.

Got Grapes?

This Derpy Little Flying Fox is having herself quite an enjoyable Nom!

“I recently spent some time with a bat carer who had a little red flying fox in care (Little reds are rare in the area so she’s quite special.)”
